Inexpensive Lodging Near Jay Peak

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, me and my buddies are looking to hit up the legendary Jay Glades before the season ends, but none of us have ever been there before.  I was hoping you guys had some suggestions for some cheap motels/lodges/anything $100 or less per night.

 

Since Jay is soooooooo far up there, its not nearly as easy finding a cheap place to stay near Killington, Sugarbush, Mt Snow, etc.

 

Any suggestions you guys have (about where to stay/eat/ski) would be greatly appreciated, we're all diamond skiers/boarders so if you guys have any good glades/trails to hit up let me know

Newport isn't exactly close, but there are some good values there.  I always enjoyed the Newport Inn.  Clean and comfortable and price was nice.

Call Jay - they are running deals on staying at the Tramhaus Lodge for about 140 per person including lift ticket. 

 

Snowline Lodge - closest off property place is a decent motel that includes a good, sit down breakfast and runs about 100 per room.

 

Alpine Haven Condos - 3 miles west towards Montgomery Center right near the big Jay access parking.  Just over 100 for a 1 bedroom condo with 2 twins and a pullout couch, perfect for 3 or 4 guys on a budget you can cook and have a fridge for beer.

 

Newport City Motel - like shmerham mentions, clean and cheap about 25 minutes from jay.. plenty of pizza joints etc. in Newport as well.

 

I've stayed at them all at varous times.

 

 

Jay tip - try the glades from one side to the other because sometimes the best snow will be over by Beaver Pond and Andre's Paradise and other times it will be out of bounds off Timbukto.  Going out of bounds off Timbukto is easily done, just look for traverses heading skier's left to get you back to the ski area.  You should be conservative at first regarding how far out you go and take higher traverses back, then you can push out and down a bit more each time so you get the lay of the land.  But stick close together, as you know it is easy to get seperated from your friends in the woods.
